Mumbai, India, January 27, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Cynapse announced the newest version of Localscope, their popular social data powered GPS app for the iPhone, that seamlessly integrates with the multi award winning Navigon MobileNavigator GPS using their AppInteract API. Users can now get state of the art, 3D turn-by-turn directions to a search result in Localscope with a tap.
Also new in this version, Localscope sets the default distance units as US or Metric automatically based on the user's locale set on their iPhones, iPods or iPads.
"We are extremely excited with the Navigon MobileNavigator integration. Localscope at the core is a mashup of social & local services to enable users to discover places & POIs. While we aim to increase the choice of location search services and social networks integrated with Localscope, we realize that enabling users to do more with the results is equally important. With this new integration, users can find destinations with Localscope and be guided there using the amazing 3D Panaroma maps of Navigon. Localscope is a great way to discover places around you and Navigon is probably the best turn by turn navigation app for the iPhone. Together, they make the best Location app combo out there," says Cynapse CTO, Dhiraj Gupta.
Localscope has recently received numerous accolades for its slick user interface and the intelligent usage of iPhone's multi touch, compass and GPS features to enable a friendly and visually appealing user experience. Macworld, AppAdvice, Appolicious, MakeUseOf and TheNextWeb all love the way the multiple search engines and crowdsourced Twitter and Foursquare are integrated as options. Localscope was also featured in the "New and Noteworthy" section of the AppStore during Christmas.
